Well, as with the person who posted to the MediaWiki forums, my server 
won't enable PHP Tidy on a shared server. So I'm relegated to using the 
external version-- but how do I start out? Where do I begin looking? 
I've found my way to the Sourceforge page, and I know my server is a 
Linux server, but beyond that, I'm not sure which package to download or 
how to implement it. I figure that as being the first step before I can 
modify anything relating to MediaWiki so I can get it to work... and 
then hopefully get my Infoboxes working from there.
